Microsoft and Nokia trying to make a comeback with $1 billion?

BY THE GOOGLE CHIC 

Have you seen the latest numbers reported by comScore survey? Out of 30,000 subscribers, Google took the lead with 31.2% of the market share! RIM came in at 30.4%, Apple at 24.7% and Microsoft at 8.0%.

With Microsoft at 8% no wonder they’re paying Nokia $1 billion to manufacture their Windows Phone. If they succeed, it will benefit both parties. However, are they too late? It’ll be a long trek up from the bottom of the ladder, let’s see how this pans out.

BY THE APPLE GIRL 

A Securities and Exchange commission document indicates that Nokia expects to transition to Windows Phone 7 platform in about two years. Yes TWO years! Can you imagine where iPhone and Android phones will be by then?

Nokia also indicates that until it moves to Windows Phone 7, it will continue to leverage its investment in Symbian. Nokia has had a setback in the phone industry with the advent of the iPhone and Android devices. I really doubt if tieing the knot with Microsoft is going to help them to make a comeback.

What do you think?
